Words Aptly Spoken

There's a Proverb in the Bible that has inspired me for most of my life:

"Words aptly spoken are like apples of gold in settings of silver."

I want to stay reminded of the power of words, how the right ones can be like giving someone the treasure of gold and silver.  And I've had many lovely words of encouragement spoken over me recently. 

So as I thought of what to make a friend from church, who has greatly encouraged me, this proverb became my inspiration.

My trusty Irish linen was pulled out again, and for some reason I really wanted a square tree to house my golden apple!

  3. That is beautiful....you are so talented. As for me I'm very much a "live and let live" kind of girl, along with my Nan's maxim that you should try to live your life as a Mrs Do-As-You-Would-Be-Done-By.......fairly tricky on lots of days!! xx

  7. Such a lovely and thoughtful gift. I'm sure your friend will love it. One quote that I really like is "Someday. That's a dangerous word....It's really just a code for never" from the film Knight & Day - not particularly high-brow but really grabbed me when I heard it!!!

  17. Simply beautiful. I don't have a motto for the year, but my word is RELAX as I am trying not to be so stressed out with things. According to my husband I am not doing too well with it so far.
